Equipping Students with Emotional Intelligence Skills
Frameworks of Tampa Bay is a nonprofit organization that empowers educators, youth services professionals, and parents and guardians through training, coaching, and research-based resources to equip youth with emotional intelligence skills.
Social and emotional skills include:
Social awareness (Empathy)
Together, these skills form emotional intelligence—EQ, as opposed to IQ.
When we proactively help children build these skills, they have a toolbox to pull from when they face challenges big and small. This, in turn, promotes their personal, academic, and one day professional success.
As the local expert in emotional intelligence in youth, Frameworks supports our students in their journey to building self-awareness. Frameworks’ Head & Heart Luncheon 2022 video showcases and follows students from preschool through high school at four of Frameworks’ partner schools: West Tampa Elementary, Citrus Park Elementary, Academy Prep of Tampa and Cristo Rey Salesian High School. Students shared their progress developing “self-awareness,” the first building block in building emotional intelligence – that essential ability that will provide a child with the opportunity to reach their full potential.
